ABSTRACT

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of different levels of poultry manure and staking on the growth and yield of cucumber at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike Teaching and Research Farm during the 2019 cropping season. The experiment was a 4 x 2 factorial laid out in a randomized complete block design with three replications. Four rates of poultry manure (0t/ha, 5t/ha, 10t/ha and 15t/ha) and two staking types (staking and no staking) were used. The parameters assessed were vine length (cm), leaf area index (cm2), number of fruits per plant, fruit weight (kg) per plant and fruit yield (t/ha). The data collected were analyzed using Genstat software release package and separation of treatment means for significant effect was done using least significant difference. The results of the experiment showed that the application of poultry manure at the rate of 10t/ha gave the highest number of fruits per plant, and fruit yield of 17.38t/ha. Similarly, staked cucumber plants produced significantly vine length, number of fruits per plant and higher fruit yield than unstaked plants. It was therefore recommended that farmers should apply 10t/ha poultry manure and, stake cucumber plants for optimum growth and yield of cucumber in Umudike, Southeastern Nigeria.
